Items subject to North Carolina use tax include tangible personal property, certain digital property and taxable services. You must pay use tax to the Department when retailers, remote sellers, or facilitators fail to collect sales or use tax on taxable transactions.

Use Line 18 to report all consumer use tax that you owe on purchases other than purchases of a boat, an aircraft, or food subject to the 2% rate of tax. You must report consumer use tax due on the purchase of a boat or an aircraft on Form E-555. You must report consumer use tax due on the purchase of food on Form E-554.
